The next frontier of medicine will be in-body communication and biosensing on the nanoscale.
Ortho-tag’s technologies enable and enhance wireless in-body communication, data exchange/storage, and
nanodiagnostic functionality of smart medical implants, providing a versatile, in vivo platform that connects digital health applications
and sensors with the body.
The “Ortho-tag” system consists of an implantable
“tag” or “wearable device” and touch probe. This innovation improves the secure transmission of wireless
communication with implantable devices through transcutaneous volume conduction – not through the air like traditional
RFID, but through the electrical conductivity of biological tissues - and enables health care providers the ability
to securely program, reprogram, and obtain real-time access (directly from the patient) to vital in-body information.
advancements made by Ortho-tag include:
• Powering implantable
tags and biosensors without the use of an internal battery
• Overcoming signal interference
with other metallic implants
• Reprogrammable high-capacity data storage capability on
• System and method for storing information relating to a medical implant device
